Calendar vs Calender vs Colander

Calendar is the correct spelling for a system of recording time.

  • There was a calendar on the wall above, with large squares around the dates.

Calender is an old word that refers to a machine used in finishing paper and cloth.

A colander is a perforated, bowl-shaped kitchen utensil for draining liquids and rinsing food.

  • Allow vegetables to air-dry in a colander for several hours, or use a salad spinner to remove excess water.
